Made by Stuart - see the 'S' in the valve casting. No size indicated but looks like a D-10 V model (Double 10 Vertical). If it is a D, flywheel should be around 3" in diameter. They are good runners, often used to power model launches or small generators. You could get them from Stuart as either a kit or already built. Back in the 1960s, you could get them from Coles Model Supply. Not sure if Stuart is still making kits today.

One just sold recently on Ebay for $785, in new condition. I recently bought one for $500, in good shape. Mine will run on as little as 5 PSI. They are high speed models, often exceeding 2000 RPM! Nice find Harry!

Stuart for sure. Unknown internal condition. Hard to tell about the various fits and workmanship by the pictures. No lubricator or stop valve. Overall rusty showing neglect. I would guesstimate around 300 dollars because a full restoration is required.

Might be a jewel or a project. It's a crap shoot.
